What is a Mentor?
Generally speaking, the word “mentor” indicates the role of an advisor or an experienced consultant. On the basis of a protected trust relationship, the mentor seeks conversations with his mentee in order to lay a friendly yet discrete foundation. This way he can find out in which areas of his life he could play a supportive role. Mentors are generalists with a high empathetic and social competence and are subject to confidentiality.
Area of responsibility
People in the public eye are usually measured by their performance. As a result, many times the person behind the fame is disregarded. The responsibility of the mentor lies in accompanying the mentee in his various areas of life, to support him in the formation of his personality and character, and to live out values in his various relationships. The responsibility of the mentor is to complement the existing support structures the mentee already has, but never to intervene in their decision making process. The approach of the mentor is long-term, holistic and discrete.
